Volkswagen settles emissions-cheating cases for $14.7B

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -

Volkswagen is agreeing to settle consumer lawsuits and government allegations that it cheated on emissions tests by taking steps that will cost the company $14.7 billion.

Terms of the settlement were revealed Tuesday in orders filed with the U.S. District Court in San Francisco.

VW will pay just over $10 billion to either buy back the cheating diesel vehicles or repair them. It also will pay owners from $5,100 to $10,000 for their trouble. The German company also has to pay governments $2.7 billion for environmental mitigation and spend another $2 billion for research on zero-emissions vehicles in the U.S.
